As you have discovered VO coding is not sufficient to get things working.

There are tools that may help... Hint: look for "software help yourself" here, but I have not used the FSC patcher/generator included there.
To virginize can I use a K+Dcan cable or do I need ICOM? Will I need to update to C1A?

I'm not super computer tech but I can get by and follow instructions. Or is it better to pay someone to do all that for me? I can build engines and full cars but my father asked for the CIC retrofit on his; so here I am lol

Also that "software help yourself" is absolute gold! thanks!

Sorry I do not know the procedure to do that.

Updating to C1A is not a bad idea albeit it has one drawback I can't recall.

You need ICOM. I just went through the same thing going to C1A. I used a $200 aliexpress clone. It was junk and I had to remove it from the case and put a fan blowing directly on it. Otherwise, it locked up after a few minutes of use. But it got the job done. I also had a big 12volt power supply to keep everything at the correct voltage.

Instructions below. These assume you have a working copy of Winkfp with the latest daten files.

Update Order
63,62,A0

Option 1
0 - Move Car Key to position 2
1 - Connect ICOM B (MOST) to any available MOST (fiber optic) Connector. Connect the USB cable between it and the ICOM module.
2 - Connect OBD connector to ICOM Module.
3 - Connect ICOM to Laptop via Ethernet cable.
4 - Start up Itool Radar and Reserve the ICOM slot. (You'll need to search for ITool Radar).
5 - I usually use the EasyConnect after ITOOL to select the MOST bus ASYNC setting and LOCK Icom.
6 - Start up WINKFP and select comfort mode
7 - Select Update ZUSB
8 - From the list, select CI63F1 first and click OK.
9 - Enter VIN
10 - Click DONE.
11 - In Next window, Click PROG-ZUSB.
12 - Blue bar will start - This step will take about 35-40 minutes. CIC screen will turn black and cic fan will be blowing at full speed.
13 -Select Update ZUSB again
14 - From the list, select CI62F1 and click OK.
15- Enter VIN
16 - Click DONE.
17 - In Next window, Click PROG-ZUSB.
18 - This step takes about 7-10 minutes.
19 - Lastly Select Update ZUSB again
20 - From the list, select CIA0F1 and click OK.
21 - Enter VIN
22 - Click DONE.
23 - In Next window, Click PROG-ZUSB.
24 - Screen might come up with BMW symbol and bootloader mode.
25 - This step takes about 45 minutes
And code default cic

I've been debating an ICOM. But its a decent chunk of $$ for a clone that may or may not work. Genuine ones are way out of the price range too. Any tips on buying one?

I got mine from aliexpress. I think most of them are the same. The Next ones in the silver box are the same board as the ones in the box with the orange label. You don't need Next for E series anyway. They have a high failure rate so don't be surprised if your first one has issues. Especially for the fiber interface. Once you are done, it should be easy to sell and get a lot of your money back. Especially for a known working set.

If you need a power supply to keep the car at 13.5V you can build one. https://www.***********.com/showthre...y-for-Flashing

The script file is the only thing that needs to be on the root directory of the USB drive.

Turn on the car & radio, insert the key and wait five or six minutes.

Then shut off the car and move the key to your computer.

Check to see if a new file appears on it.
Hoping you can help me. I've tried to get the 1b hex file off my car on 2 different USB sticks by following the instructions of waiting for nav system to boot up. Place usb stick (with the 1b.zip files extracted on to a fat32 USB stick) in to usb slot for 30 seconds remove and check on laptop. No joy.
Last digits on vin number are a477815. Attached image of version.
Can I use premium maps or have they got to be motion?
Any ideas on how to get the fsc?
Any help will be massively appreciated.

The script does not work for Motion systems.

Nor can you use the CIC premium maps on Motion units.

Question about updating

hello

i downloaded a 2020 nav update for my BMW with CCC. The download has 5 different .rar files. How do I go about putting them on my USB? Do I unpack and put the 5 folders on the USB or do I combine them somehow?

thanks

Unpack the first file into a folder.

That will also get all off the others.

Then copy the entire contents of the folder onto the usb stick including the sub folders.

Remember just the contents.

I end up with 5 separate folders on my USB, the first one has sub file "config.nfm" and sub folder "pkgdb", folders 2-5 have only sub folder "pkgdb".

Does that sound right?

The config file should be on the root of the USB drive with the other folders immediately under it.

There is a screenshot of the folder structure here.
